Iridology is the study of health by analysing the structure and patterns in the iris of the eye via examination with a magnifying iris light.
The eye has a reflex connection to every tissue, organ and system in the body via the nervous system.
Every iris is unique and individual much the same as a finger print, therefore every persons iris analysis will be slightly different, depending on genetics, diet and life-style. The eye may be a indicator of your unique genetic back-ground going back up to three generations.
When performing iridology, the Iridologist/Naturopath will be assessing the colour, structure of the fibres and the variations of the iris. We also take into account how the pupil is represented in the iris and the sclera (white part) of the eye.
We are evaluating your constitution in relation to inherent weaknesses and strengths.
The iris may reveal the relative site of irritation, inflammation, over activity, acidity, injury and degeneration of tissues and organs.
In many cases we may also evaluate if there is toxic accumulation in any areas of the body.
We also look for chemical and nutritional imbalances.
This enables the Iridologist/Naturopath to determine potential health problems at the earliest stages.
In the 20th Century, Doctors from Australia, Europe and the U.S.A. brought iridology into world-wide recognition but iridology dates back as far as 1861 when a young boy by the name of Ignatz von Peczeley noticed a black stripe in an owls eye that had a fractured leg. He nursed the owl back to health and then noticed that a crooked white line had replaced the black line.
Iridology is not a treatment and does not serve as a complete diagnosis but may be the first sign that and organ is in trouble.
Iridology does not name specific diseases.
